He also starred in and directed the film Save the Rhino Vietnam about the poaching crisis.

Speaking to The Gentleman’s Journal, Dudman revealed he became an actor “by mistake.”

He said: “I became an actor by mistake, really. I went to film school to be a director. That’s what I really wanted to do — and still want to do.

“But I went to an acting workshop to see what acting was like from a director’s point-of-view and fell in love with it.

“I started going to auditions instead of lectures — and then The A List came up. That was kind of like my drama school; it gave me a great understanding of how a set works.”

Speaking about his experience on the set of The Stranger, Dudman said: “There was so much to learn from them! I mean, they’re so skilled.

“I feel like the younger members of the cast were just in awe of them. And I think my acting got better by osmosis.

“I never felt like the older actors were teaching me how to act — I just feel like obsessing, or watching how they hold themselves and interact with the cast and crew is more interesting.

“Certainly more so than thinking, ‘Oh, that little eyebrow wiggle they did there was great…’”
